SBRugby organised and delivered the first ever tournament between the new French school Winston Churchill and Charles de Galle in December 2015. The teams competed in football and tag-rugby across 4 age groups. Both schools discovered a form of emulation in rivalry that exists so often in England but not in France. Winston Churchill won the first encounter 4 to 3 and the trophy will be back in contention next year on Saturday 10 December 2016. It’ll be Charles de Gaulle’s chance to write their name in this new tradition! The SBRugby team is working on the organisation of this tournament which should count around 200 primary and secondary pupils. We are actively looking for sponsors which would like to associate their name with the one of Serge Betsen and his team. So if you are a company, read this sponsorship brochure and contact us. We are excited to know who will win the Winston Churchill and Charles de Gaulle Cup this year! The registrations as players are open, so please register here.
In May 2016, André Malraux asked SBRugby to organise a Tag-Rugby tournament between the Year 6s. For most pupils it was the last opportunity to represent their school colours before they go to secondary school. The tournament took place in Cuckoo Park in Ealing and was a great success.
These tournaments are an important part of the holistic approach of SBRugby. The competition helps improve and learn to behave in victory and defeat. It’s an opportunity to put into practice the technical skills pupils have learned and the values of teamwork, solidarity and respect learned during the training sessions.
